DIPHU, June 21: Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma has assured that the state government would provide all facilities towards the development of health, education and road connectivity to KAAC.
“The KAAC must ensure that all the schemes are implemented without any malpractice,” he said on Monday after attending the swearing-in ceremony of the newly-elected KAAC members.
When asked about the up-gradation of the present KAAC to Territorial Council as per the pact with the United Peoples Democratic Solidarity (UPDS), he said, “It is a Territorial Council. When two or more districts are combined it is a Territorial council. Now it is a Territorial Council as two districts — Karbi Anglong and West Karbi Anglong — are combined here.”
“To change from Autonomous Council to Territorial Council or other names it needs constitutional amendment. It is under discussion for a constitutional amendment for the renaming of the present KAAC to Territorial Council or other names. It is what the Karbi people want,” the CM said.
